single kort nozzle tugboat kit
« on: June 15, 2014, 13:24:14 »
Can someone reccomend a single kort nozzle tugboat kit?
Just Like the odin tugboat?
Reason why I like the odin
Is that it looks pretty easy enough for a beginner to just add the running gears
since theres already a space or something for the running gear to sit on

Hi norry
I want to try and build my own tugboat kit
Would you mind posting a pix of your tugboat
And the running gears?
makes me wonder how big the motor and the driveshaft for use  also the props

My Amsterdam pulls my 10ft inflatable around the pond quite easily.  Have not tried it with me in the inflatable.  Does not have a Korts  steering, but have heard other guys have modified it to fit one.

I think I prefer the fixed kortnozzle more than the steerable korts
Ill try to pull something with the aziz when im done
Need to modify the towing post though
